Every year we go on an annual trip to Asia, this time we decided to visit family in Taipei before returning to Thailand. We were planning on heading to Bali but due to the volcanic activity we redirected to Phuket/Ko Phi Phi.

This flight report covers the following trips:

Next up was a quick domestic flight to Phuket International Airport which was roughly a 70 minute flight.

An Airbus A330-300 would be helping us make the quick jaunt over to Phuket. I checked the flight availabilities and Thai also runs a 747-400 on the route showing how many people are flying the route.

Seating was 2-4-2 in economy. I took a quick peek into business and it was arranged in a 2-2-2 arrangement with near lie flat seating.

I was seated in 33J which was on the right side of the 2-4-2 arrangement. Legroom was alright, what was really surprising was the lack of storage under the seat from what I presume was the IFE boxes. At least there were footrests!

The IFE looked a bit antiquated and the resolution was pretty bad.

The inflight snack was a chicken Thai curry roll, fried job's tears and a bottle of water. It was pretty tasty and was welcomed on such a short flight.
